Sunday we are off to California. We haven't been back since December 2004. Our family has doubled in size since then. Many of them have had kids of their own and this will be the first time meeting them. My parents are meeting us there for two weeks. We are going to have a party for Obie, go to my grandma's for Christmas, visit Cinderella at Disneyland and have a blast just hanging out. We can't wait to see everyone! More to come when we return.
On Sunday, December 14th Obie will be 1! We have had him one whole year. He is the sweetest little guy over. I love his adventurous spirit, the way he hangs is head and sobs when he is told no, the way he points to tell us what he wants, his constant need to climb onto whatever is in his way, how he smiles at anyone who talks to him, his determination and lack of fear, his love for his sister, his scary roar, his love of books, his drooliness, his little sounds and fierce sounds, his flippy hair, how he splashes like crazy in the bath, his facination with Barney, and the way he cuddles when he gets sleepy. He is such a delight. His big blue eyes are to die for and he couldn't be more special. Today he weighed in at 21 lbs. 2 oz. and 30 1/2 inches. (25% weight and 75% height)
